“The Master” Harold Saxon & Lucy Saxon

For the Third Krewe du Who Collector Card run, my husband Seann and I decided to do a card together. Our first thought was Rose Tyler (of course) and the Metacrisis Doctor from Journey’s End, which we’ve been slowly working on (finding the right color suit for him for that one without spending an arm and a leg is challenging, and I’m embarking on an ambitious project for the blue/purple jacket myself). Instead, we decided to go in another direction, departing from the Rose/Doctor pairing and going for a pair of characters that haven’t been represented in our card runs yet: The Master Harold Saxon and his wife, Lucy Saxon. We are both natural blondes (though we might have to faux-frost Seann’s hair for this), and Seann can do a wonderful impression of Saxon’s “crazy face”. Haha!

Part 1: The Characters

The outfits that make the most sense and would be most recognizable (particularly together) would be the ones from “The Last of the Time Lords” in which Lucy actually shoots The Master. He’s wearing a fairly ordinary black suit with a white shirt and black tie. Lucy, on the other hand, is wearing a gorgeous red satin dress.

Part 2: Sources of Info & Inspiration

The primary resources we’ve been using for these costumes are actually just the episodes themselves. I’ve been doing some researching on other cosplayers who have recreated Lucy’s dress, to see if there are any good ALTs out there or a pattern someone has made to make the dress, since it’s a pretty unusual cut.

As an added bonus, I’m throwing in the extra Doctor Who related cosplays I have at the end, for anyone who might also be interested in those.

Doctor Who U.N.I.T. Troopers

Our beloved Krewe Du Who started up our own “security” forces to help guard our Whovians during the IKOC parade and other KDW events. My husband is one of the UNIT “brigadiers” in charge of all that, so he sorta roped me into joining them from time to time. I have yet to do any official duty as a UNIT trooper, myself, though I love our guys and gals in uniform. BUT I did suit up to join a photoshoot for a soon-to-be-released series of playing cards, similar to the Collector Card runs KDW has done, but with a gaming angle built in, with all of us as “characters”. This sounded fun, so I volunteered (casually mentioned) to be a medic for the game run. This meant… another costume!

Part 2: Sources of Info & Inspiration

There is a completely awesome breakdown of the “new era” UNIT Soldier cosplay on this LiveJournal Doctor Who Cosplay Costuming page. This was our starting point for everything. This thread on SciFiHero.net also has some nice screen caps for reference. Our fantastic UNIT Trooper Brian then put together a guide for our own KDW UNIT members to build costumes, so this is what I started with.
